Tate Stevens  (“I’m Already There” by Lonestar / The Over 25s)

Tate dedicated the song to his father.

Britney says his performances always touch her and his coach is doing a great job with him. Demi agrees. She says Tate is always incredible but doesn’t think it was his best performance. Simon loves the song and the story behind it. He also notes that Tate was shaky on the song in places. LA. says America loves Tate! Do you?

Diamond White – “Because You Love Me” by Celine Dion / The Teens

Diamond White didn’t leave a dry eye in the audience during her performance of Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me,” dedicated to her mother.

Diamond gets a HUGE standing ovation all around. L. A. says Diamond has had many amazing moments onThe X-Factor stage, but none like the one she had tonight. She is the truth, he says. Demi says she is blown away and the song connected with her, reminding her of her family. She is about to bawl. Simon says Diamond was incredible and totally fearless. She sings better than people twice her age and he believed it.Britney says Diamond broke her heart with that song and it was amazing.

Emblem3 – (“Secret” by One Republic / The Groups)

Emblem3 dedicated the song to their youth and spiritual leaders.

LA thinks the performance just lacked in emotion. Britney thought it was different from their usual stuff and it was good. Demi says she thought there was more emotion in this performance than in the past. Simon says it was a terrific song choice and they could make a record with this kind of music. Hmm..

Arin Ray – (“Hero”by Enrique Iglesias / The Teens)

Arin Ray dedicated Enrique Iglesias’ “Hero” to his older brother Aris on the Top 10 Thanksgiving-themed performance show.

LA says it was a good song choice, but it was just too much for him. It wasn’t a 5 million performance. Demi says she was bored and would not sign Arin to her label if she had one. Simon says Arin is being caged up by these songs. He agrees with LA that Arin needs a big moment and he isn’t getting one. Britney says it takes a pro to come out and perform like this. She’s not too happy about all the negative criticism about her boy.

CeCe Frey – (“Wind Beneath My Wings” by Bette Midler / The Young Adults)

CeCe Frey performed Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings,” dedicated to her sister who passed away at age 7.

LA says with this kind of a song you really need the emotion behind it and she had it. He could feel every word of it and it was genuine and real. He thinks CeCe has come a long way and she is a champion. Britney says it is hard to be critical of someone who just poured their heart out on stage in such an amazing way. Simon says they have seen another side of CeCe in the competition tonight. Demi says it was awesome and she loved it. She really put her soul and heart into her performance tonight.

Fifth Harmony – (“I’ll Stand By You” by The Pretenders / The Groups)

Fifth Harmony dedicates the Pretenders “I’ll Stand By You” to God and their families. 

LA says it was great and it is tough to be critical with the holiday theme of Thanksgiving. Britney says it was beautiful and touching, bravo! Demi says she loves watching them because they are really genuine. (Word of the evening apparently.) She didn’t love the song choice, but she did love the performance. Simon says he was nuts over the performance and they’ve really come together as a group. He hopes America will vote for them.

Beatrice Miller – (“Chasing Cars” by Snow Patrol / The Teens)

Beatrice Miller dedicated the song to her sisters who were born prematurely.

LA says Beatrice is an inspiration to girls everyone. She is great. Demi would like to see Beatrice do some music that is more appropriate to her age and fun. She thinks she is not progressing forward. Simon says he could tell the song really connected to her and she was getting choked up with it. She’s a sweet girl and he likes her. Britney thinks it was her best performance so far and she was terrific.

Vino Alan – (“God Bless The USA” by Lee Greenwood / The Over 25s)

Vino Alan performed the song dedicated to the U.S. military.

Britney says the performance was amazing and spot on. Demi says she has been hard on him in the past but he’s obviously doing great coming in third place two weeks in a row. America is really going to lvoe what he did this week. Simon says you can’t judge a book by its cover because underneath his hard shell, Vino is a softie. LA says he is very proud of Vino for standing up for the troops and he is standing for him.

Paige Thomas – (“Everytime” by Britney Spears / The Young Adults)

Paige Thomas performed our home girl’s best ballad, Everytime,” dedicated to the woman who raised her, Colleen.

Britney says it was a beautiful performance. LA says it was very good, but not good enough to take her out of last place with the voters. Simon says the song was muffled in places and her emotion got the best of her. She is going to have it rough tomorrow. Demi says it broke her heart to see her sing tonight because it was pitchy. She sang it better in rehearsals.

Carly Rose Sonenclar – (“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” / The Teens)

The judges favorite’s dedicated the song to her brother, Russel.

LA says wow! He says she is force of nature and she pulled out the big guns tonight. She only needed one big moment and she had two. Demi still can’t believe she is just 13. She is going to have a career in the music industry for life. Simon says that is the best he has ever heard that song. He thinks she will come in first place next week and she is blowing out the competition. Britney is also dumbstruck that she is only 13.

Britney tweeted after the show:

Alright…it’s that time again! Let’s Scream & Shout & right now - I know the Britney Army’s got this!
